These cinnamon chocolate scones are amazing! They are very easy to make, simply delicious, and come out delightfully moist.

You can use semisweet chocolate chips, but in this recipe, I used a half cup of cinnamon chips and a half cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Grease a baking sheet or line with parchment and set it aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Cut the cold butter into the dry mixture with a pastry blender or knife, then mix to combine. The resulting mixture should resemble a coarse meal.
  5. Add in beaten egg and milk then stir until well combined.
  6. Knead in bowl until smooth, about 5-10 minutes. The dough is just a bit sticky. You can adjust the dough with a little extra flour as necessary.
  7. Add chips and a few dashes of cinnamon, so there are swirls of cinnamon, but not brown dough.
  8. Refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes so it is easier to handle.
  9. To shape the scones into triangles, take out 1C of dough and flatten it into a 1-inch thick round patty on a floured board.
  10. Cut the patty into quarters and transfer onto parchment-lined (or greased) baking sheet, separating quarters by a finger width (½ inch) because scones will rise and spread a little.
  11. Sprinkle lightly with turbinado sugar so the scones will glisten slightly after cooking, but not so much that there will be a hard sugary crust.
  12. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  13. Place in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Check your scones after about 15-20 minutes and adjust position as necessary.
  14. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
  15. Serve and enjoy.
